Hi all,
I am new here and i do not knows very much about new computers system.
Currently i have my old intel4 Gx270 which is working good for my personal use.
But now kids wants to play new modern high graphic games and HD quality videos and you knows gx270 is far behind for this purpose.firstly i thought to buy Core2 duo but few friends told me to not go for it.so i increased my budget and now i have following two options:
option1: To buy new i3 dell system with 3210 processor near about 3ghz and take some advise with you all friends about rest parts to be buy.i means what mother board should be best with which graphic cards and rest of the parts.As i told i do not know about parts so i request all of friends to give me exact name and model of parts so i can give same spec to shopkeeper to build according to same otherwise he can build an cheap pc and will take much money due to my unawareness of spec.
please tell me each part to buy for making i3 best spec pc within the budget of 350 dollar, which would enough for play modern games and high quality graphic videos etc.

Option2:Keep my gx270 p4 as it is and buy Playstion3 because building a i3 pc almost same price as PS3.but i not know that PS3 have much more best graphics for games and videos.

waiting for some detailed reply from all you friends regarding to decide which option is best and if the option number 1 is best then what should be the best spec within my budget of 300 dollar.
Thanks and regards.

To build a computer with a i3 processor that can run modern games on high requires at very least about a 500-600 dollar budget. At minimum for a Graphics card you would probably want a hd radeon 7770 Ghz edition

Will you need to be buying an operation system?

No! Dell makes horrible computers!!! :non: 

Build your own, you can get a far better system for $600 than you ever could buying a Dell.

I really wouldn't use a cheap, nasty inclusive case PSU. Only buy Antec, corsair, xfx or seasonic. What did that build cost? Let's see if we can do better.

Have a look at this. I've chosen a different chipset for the motherboard, as h77 would overkill with a CPU that can't overclock. I've also chosen a vastly better CPU than the $20 (!) one you had selected, as well as a bigger (but more expensive) hard drive. Trust me, 250gb gets full pretty easily!
